This is really a nice campground, but seriously who makes these super strict rules??? Hosts, COE, or a dictator (or in this case, is that the same as the hosts?). We have stayed at many COE campgrounds around the nation and have never run into one as strict as this one. Absolutely no arriving at your site even 1 minute before 2pm. Tow vehicles must be facing the correct direction (WTF!?), dogs must be on leash even when swimming (how does that work?), no alcohol allowed even though your in the midst of some of the best wine country in the nation? Not to even go into about how the freakin' grounds crew have no reservation about spraying your RV, tow, and outdoor items when watering (the very nice) grass. Oh, and for some unexplained reason, the guys mowing make many, many passes over the dirt areas to ensure the entire campground is covered with blankets of dust. Sorry, but if we can't arrive before 2pm, the grounds crew should be done by 2pm! On the positive side, a very pretty campground on the Snake river, most sites are large to very large and almost all are big rig friendly. A few sites have full hookups, but most are electric only from what we saw. Good Verizon coverage, but no satellite reception on our site. I cannot recommend this one, unless rules and/or hosts are changed. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Motorhome.

This park is a COE Top 100 park for a reason. It is located on a beautiful lake that holds back waters of the lower Snake River. Sites are fairly level and spacious. The inner loop is 50 amp full hook up while the outer loop is electric only. Our spot allowed us to get satellite tv but not all sites are compatible. Large shade trees and beautiful green areas between sites make this a peaceful place to relax. There is a marina attached to the park. No wifi but decent Verizon 4G signal.

Be aware, the park is very popular and reservations are a must. We originally booked an electric only site but on arrival they just had a cancellation and we were able to stay with FHU. You won't go wrong with this park. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Motorhome.

We stayed in a back-in site, plenty of room, with electrical hookup only. Water is available at the entrance to the park at the dump station pull out, the faucets inside the park are not threaded for a hose. Overall nice park, very spacious and most sites have shade. The pads are asphalt and there is a nice area that has a fire ring/grill and picnic table. Get a site along the river if you have the chance. OTA tv signals were good and Verizon service was excellent. There is a marina and park adjacent to the camping area. The tri-cities area has pretty much anything you need or want, we would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

Strangest COE campground we have stayed in. We have stayed in more than 10 Corps parks around the country and this one has the strangest rules. We could not check in prior to 2:00 pm. We moved to another site and had to leave by 12:00 and could not check back in until 2:00 even though the site was vacant and clean by 11:00. All vehicles have to be pointed in the same direction - going out. Don't even think about having a tire on the grass with your toad. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Motorhome.

This is a lovely park right on a big lake. There's hardly a bad spot anywhere in the park. We love the ones on the outer ring, overlooking the water of course. The only two downsides are: 1) They say no alcohol at all, so if you want a glass of wine with dinner, you have to do that inside or in a coffee cup, neither of which I like doing. And 2) there is no water at the site. There is a place to fill up when you enter though, so that's good. Swimming access is OK from the camp. It's lovely and green and the people are very friendly and helpful. And $6 with the America Beautiful Senior pass cannot be beat. We would certainly stay here again.

Look for sites on the outer boundaries of the park: they overlook the water. We loved the 50 amp service for our dual airconditioning in the Airstream.

Fantastic park. Off the beaten path but very popular. Pulled in late midweek afternoon with no reservations hoping to stay the weekend but only got one night. It was beautiful. Rate reflects FHU pullthru with lake view using hubby's geezer pass. Will definitely come back again, but reserving in advance. Gorgeous place. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Hwy 12 & 124 roundabouts were tricky coming from the east but worth the trouble. A bit off the beaten path for an overnighter.

We really enjoyed our short stay here. Our spacious spot was right on the lake with beautiful views and sunset. Only real concern is I thought we had a site with water and electric. Turned out to only be electric. Probably my fault but make sure you know before setting up. They have water available just outside the park. Amazing value - especially because we have a national parks annual pass we paid only $6. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

We have stayed here the last 3 years and have enjoyed each visit. The sites are very generous, room for 1 or more tents, pads are mostly level and all sites have electricity. There are some full hook-up sites mostly in the center with limited view of the river. The park is fairly compact though and the interior roads offers enough up and down for a nice walk and a good work out. The shower/restroom is central, kept very clean and really not large enough if the park is full. There is a dump station with a single port just outside the entrance with easy access from both directions. They have installed a new fresh water filtration system so the available water is excellent. Next to the park is a marina and boat launch and a very large and well maintained county park with lots of space to play, or walk you dog. Wind can be an issue here and you need to factor that in when choosing a site. Sites on the south and east catch most of the wind. There are multiple trains passing close by day and night which will be an annoyance for some or a romantic reminder to others. All in all this is a great spot for all ages and all equipment. (rate reflects mid-week senior rate) We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Motorhome.

This US Army Corps of Engineers campground is upriver from Ice Harbor Dam near Burbank. This is our second summer being here. It is a well-maintained, well-staffed, and quiet campground. There are several sites which border the Snake River for an evening spent eating supper while watching the sun set over the river and foothills. For those looking for a campground away from railroad tracks & trains, then this may not be for you. However the noise created by 8 trains a day, is minimized by a fair amount of landscaping between campground and RR tracks. The large spaces between RV sites, large number of full-hookup sites plus plenty of space between sites to extend slides and still have plenty of space between units and fire pits/picnic tables area makes this our kind of campground. Many sites have lots of shade which is a premium in the sage brush terrain of eastern Washington. If watching tug boats, recreational water craft, and people having lots of fun is your kind of place, then this is for you also. A big plus is the large marina which provides an opportunity to launch water craft for a trip to Portland, Oregon or Lewiston, Idaho. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Travel Trailer.

Beautifully maintained campground. Nice shade trees. Large sites. Campground gets funding based on occupancy rate therefore they've upped the # of tents per site to 3 with up to 8 occupants, i.e, 24 people per site. One bathhouse for entire campground. Too many people. Too much noise. Too many pets running loose. Too bad new policy allows so many people and vehicles in campground. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Motorhome.

We stayed in site 5 for two days. This site only had electric (50amp). If it had full hookups, I would have given it a 10. Some sites do have full hookups but the waiting list is long. Beautiful grounds that seemed to be mowed every day by a COE person. Some of the sites have a view of the river but our site didn't. Nice place to stay but they close the latter part of September. Would definitely stay here again. The $11 per night is for Golden Passport rate. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Motorhome.

A favorite for us! Their advertised 1/2 off M-THR + 1/2 off that as seniors, WHAT A DEAL! Our site (41 has *FHU) has water view to watch boaters and even a barge & tug the last morning. A gem and worth the nine mile drive from Pasco. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Motorhome.

What a great find. This is a beautiful park, very well maintained and our site was right on the river. Our only wish was that we had had water at our site. The river side sites do not have on site water, but others do. We will be going back to this campground. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Great COE site. Our spot was a drive through with nice shade trees and a beautiful view of the lake (river). This is a great site, particularly at the mid week discount price of $11 a night. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Motorhome.

Check in was OK. There were no "camping" or "RV park ahead" or any other indication of where the registration and camping area was, when we entered the boat ramp/parking area. Not wanting to end up in a dead end or area we could not turn around in, we had to disconnect and use the toad to find the registration office! The check in person said the signs were in the back of a Park Rangers pickup and he had not got around to putting them up this spring! After finding registration, there was a choice of three sites available with full hookups. We were hoping to get a satellite signal for our dish and only one looked promising. Many sites will not work because of trees, but site 8 EWS worked for us by parking well forward in the site. Several electric only sites were also available. Have plenty of sewer hose, most full hookups have the sewer hookup to the extreme rear of the sites. Well maintained and a good, no nonsense ranger presence to keep people from parking anywhere they pleased or not following the park rules. A very popular park and Sun, Mon and Tues may be the best times without reservations. We would stay again if space was available. We camped at Charbonneau Park COE in a Motorhome.
